Trip Report Tedgale Trip Report: Portugal in April 2014 (with Easter in Amsterdam)

Jump to last reply

We traveled to Portugal this April, to get away from the last of the worst Canadian winter in a decade. Though we travel to Europe twice a year on average, it was a first visit to Portugal for us.

Since we arrived home only yesterday afternoon, I am still coping with jet lag. Therefore, this report will be written in instalments. I will start with tombstone information – how we flew, how we got around inside the country and where we stayed.

After a high-level overview of our trip, I plan to provide some specific advice and insights about travel in Portugal, based on our experience.

Depending on how much interest there is and how energetic I feel, I may continue with write-ups on specific sites and towns.

I will tell you the best things we saw, did and ate. This is not meant to be a blog and I will spare you the granular detail on what we did hour-by-hour.

Before I get deep into the dull facts on flights and room rates, I will give you a taste of the pleasures we uncovered in Portugal. I hope this will motivate you to stick with the preliminary throat clearing about logistics:
